d&b’s J8 and J12 loudspeakers are acoustically matched and constructed to be mechanically compatible sharing the same vertical directivity, size, footprint, weight, rigging and driver complement. The coherent vertical wave front that is produced enables the construction of vertical arrays starting from a minimum of four up to a maximum of twenty-four cabinets with a fully user and venue definable vertical profile. Both loudspeakers use an active crossover between the low and mid and a passive crossover between the mid and high frequencies. J8 and J12 are completely symmetrical horizontally with two 12" neodymium low frequency drivers placed to the outsides in a dipolar arrangement. Their horn loaded coaxial mid and high frequency section is mounted in the center of the loudspeakers. The mid frequency horn uses a 10” driver, while the high frequency section consists of two 1.4” exit HF compression drivers with 3" voice coils mounted to a dedicated wave-shaping device.
